Microsoft has announced that the free-to-play Microsoft Flight will finally be launching on February 29. While the download is initially free, players will be able to access additional content for a price. On launch day a Hawaiian Adventure Pack will be released through Games For Windows Live for 1,600 Microsoft Points (or $20). The expansion adds an additional plane (a two-seater Vans RV-6A) and 20 missions to the core package, and two additional planes will also be available as separate purchases. The Maule M-7-260C (which includes a fully detailed cockpit) and North American P-51 Mustang will be available at launch for 1,200 points ($15) and 640 points ($8) respectively. While you're waiting for the game to launch, be sure to check out our time spent with Microsoft Flight back at CES.
The spiritual successor to Microsoft Flight Simulator launches at the end of the month.
